We have an exciting opportunity this spring . . . My7on7 touch football is coming to Eagan!
For players currently in 1st thru 8th grade, My7on7 is a five-week touch football league that begins mid-April with games running on Sunday's only.
Josh Anderson, our EAA Football Director along with Coach NJ (Varsity Head Coach) have been working together with My7on7 to bring this opportunity to our youth players!
Whether your child played flag or tackle this past fall, the goal is to get as many youth football players out on the field this spring. We want to fill our JV practice and Varsity fields every Sunday.
The reason for Sunday is this allows multi-sport kids to participate in both their primary (Spring) sport and My7on7.
- At a minimum (weather permitting), teams will get together each Sunday.
- While some teams may choose to meet once or twice during the week for a practice, most teams arrive early for their games for a quick practice prior.
Sunday, April 11th thru May 2nd (with a preseason kick-off prior/date TBD)
Time: Games will start anytime between 3:00PM - 8:00PM and plan for 1.5 hrs
Typically, the younger grades start at 3PM with the older grades starting later.
$99 - Early bird registration ends January 15
$115 - Jan 16 thru Mar 12
$50 - Late fee

The players shown are a mix of current 8th and 9th graders; coaches Josh Will and Brian Larson. There was a second/younger team as well that played in the Farmington league back in 2018.
This is a reminder to all parents, coaches and players to please remain vigilant in your return to play COVID safety procedures. Continue to monitor social distancing requirements and if anyone is feeling ill with COVID-like symptoms they should not participate. There have been isolated cases of positive COVID results in players and coaches this summer. It is important to report positive COVID results to your team immediately and to follow MDH recommendations for quarantine. Our number one priority is the safety of our players and families. Thank you for your continued support.
